Around €5,000 worth of drugs were found in the gym area of a GAA club.
The drugs are suspected quantities of cocaine and heroin, but officers are still awaiting test results from the labs at Garda HQ.
Officers made the discovery more than a fortnight ago at Kilcoole GAA club in Co Wicklow. The case is being investigated by Greystones gardai.
The drugs were found in deal bags hidden in a protein canister.
Gardai also found an apparent tick-list, which has been sent for fingerprint and forensic analysis.
Offices searched the clubhouse on Newcastle Road in Kilcoole after they received an anonymous tip-off that drugs were hidden there.
The discovery was made at 3.30pm on January 6.
No arrests have been made yet in relation to the matter.
